All questions (except feedback) have the option to be Critical or Mandatory and also have an option to request additional information.

Critical Questions must be answered correctly for the assessment to pass. If any Critical question is answered incorrectly, the assessment will fail regardless of the percentage scored.

Mandatory questions will always appear in the assessment.

Additional information may be provided with an answer which may allow “working out” or other information related to why someone chose that particular answer to a question.

In the example Multiple Choice question below, a default score of 1.00 will already be associated. There will also be the option to include an external URL along with a description of the URL site. This allows a link to be included in the question text for the user to click on to access. This allows the user to connect to an external page to search for the correct answer.

Wild card characters can be used when defining answer text for a simple text question. For example if a set of words are required to be entered in order, e.g. ‘red’, ‘green’, ‘blue’ the entered answer text should be: “*red*green*blue*” (without quotes). Alternatively, if the exact order of the words is not important, the entered text should follow the format: “*red*,*green*,*blue*” (without quotes). Note: commas in the expression must not be followed by space characters.
